LAKE PLACID - Village police are looking for a Saranac Lake man who went missing over the weekend, possibly headed toward the Adirondack Loj area.

Wesley A. Wamsganz, 22, was last seen early Saturday afternoon in the village of Lake Placid, walking on Sentinel Road toward the Adirondack Loj area, according to village police Sgt. Chuck Dobson. It isn't known why he was headed there, according to Dobson, but he told the last person he spoke to that was where he was going.

Dobson asked anyone who was in the Adirondack Loj area on Saturday who may have seen something to contact police.

Wamsganz was reported missing Sunday. The last time he was seen he was wearing a green Carhartt jacket, jeans and a winter cap, Dobson said. He didn't have anything else with him, such as a backpack, Dobson said.

Dobson said Wamsganz does not own a vehicle, as far as police know.

Wamsganz is white, 6 feet, 2 inches tall and about 175 pounds, with blond hair and blue eyes.

Forest rangers have checked trailheads in the Adirondack Loj area but found no clues, state Department of Environmental Conservation spokesman David Winchell said.

"We've come up with nothing in our efforts," Winchell said.

Anyone with any information on Wamsganz's possible whereabouts is asked to call village police at 523-3306.
